Before we dive into the detail, allow us to quickly clear a few things up, which will save some time later.


We know that sometimes it can get a bit confusing when reading about what makes a spirit distinctive; there are often lots of terms used to describe the spirit which don't actually say much about the quality of the spirit itself. Below are some of our favourite words used to describe many other spirits, which we would like to assure you apply to every one of our products too:

  • Independent

  • Hand crafted

  • Artisan

  • Contemporary

  • Traditional

  • Maverick

  • Modern take on an old classic

  • Distilled by hand

  • Filled by hand

  • Labelled by hand

  • Lovingly made with passion

  • Truly unique

  • Bold and exciting

  • Genuine

  • Really nice

Now that's settled and out of the way, we can move on to the important stuff; what makes our products

really distinctive.

Hover over the images below to find out some of the aspects that make us stand out from the crowd.

If you'd like to learn even more about the history and process behind English Spirit, Dr John has compiled plenty of detail in his book, The Drinker's Guide to Distilling. This is the first chapter in what promises to be a very informative and revealing series; and is available to purchase on Amazon here.
